Producer: CHATEAU RIEUSSEC
The Rieussec estate was the property of local monks in the 18th century. Following the French Revolution, church property was confiscated by the state and auctioned off. So began the journey of Chateau Rieussec to become one of the greatest Sauternes wines, and sweet wines of France. Classified as a first growth in 1855, it is now in the care of the famous Rothschild family. Given that their portfolio also includes Lafite and Mouton, Rieussec is in esteemed company. These wines are marvelous, luscious dessert wines that benefit greatly from bottle ageing and will keep for decades to come.
